Wednesday I covered a photo class. (They still teach it, and the students still use black and white film.) I would really like to discuss something with the teacher, but even if I did get the chance, I don't think I'd actually bring this up. It's kind of, um, silly.
In the lesson plan, it stated: "When they have 15 minutes of class time reaming..."
I know he meant "remaining". I know it's just a typo. But I've subbed for him a few times, and he still hasn't fixed it.
A lot of teachers do this. They use the same basic lesson plans every time they have a sub. They change out specifics like the date and the specific assignment, but things like discipline and the schedule remain the same. No big deal, except when they have a glaring mistake.
Sometimes it's a misspelling. A couple teachers have "role" when they mean "roll". But they don't read through it, and so I'm the only one who sees the mistake.
I kind of want to take a red pen and put editing marks on these things. I know it would be in poor taste, so I don't. Oh, but I'm itching to.
